It's been a great journey this year in AP Psych, mostly because of the quality of my travel companions. :) Have a great summer!

As a member of TOPSS (Teachers of Psychology in Secondary Schools), I have the opportunity to recognize the achievement of two outstanding psychology students in the spring of each year. Since I have so many fantastic students, it is hard to identify winners, so I have to go by "the numbers," so to speak.
In reviewing student grades from both first and second semesters, I select the top male and top female performers. This year, as usual, this led me to two very deserving honorees, Dan Magyar and Joyce King.
Both have consistently earned top scores on examinations and course assignments, as well as demonstrating interest in psychology above and beyond what is expected to excel in the course. In addition to receiving certificates commemorating their efforts this year, their names have been submitted to the American Psychological Association (APA) for recognition in the organization's online listing of each year's recipients.
Congratulations Dan and Joyce!
